This is the last coin of George V to be struck for India, but in fact the coin was issued in the reign of King Edward VIII, but has the portrait of his Father.

This is the largest bronze coin struck in India at that time. You have the crowned bust of George V on one side and the date and value on the other side. These coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, but over the past 80 years they have mellowed a little.

Because of the death of George V early in the year most, if not all, of the coins would have been struck during the brief reign of his son, Edward VIII. We think this is an important and attractive coin and the price is not all that much considering the age and the history of this piece.

India, George V 1920 1/12th Anna Uncirculated

During the reign of King George V, many different denominations of coins were issued in India. The 1/12th Anna was the smallest of these denominations. It is a small copper coin and one that would have been used by the poor of the country, therefore to find Uncirculated examples is rather difficult. The coins have the crowned bust of the Monarch on one side and the date and denomination on the other side. These particular coins are dated 1920 and are Uncirculated with full original lustre, but over the past 90 or so years they have toned a little. The smallest Indian coin, an unusual date and top quality, all add up to make these coins rather interesting.
